My recipe for overnight oats which I’m loving for breakfast at the moment. I’ve been eating them a few times a week for months now but they are currently being consumed pretty much on a daily basis!
Sometimes after I wake up I don’t feel like eating straight away. Or if I practice yoga first thing, I’m really hungry by the time I finish and want to eat something RIGHT after. Overnight oats work in both cases. They are one of the easiest things to prepare and they’re ready whenever you want them for breakfast.
This version is chocolate with berries but it’s easily adaptable to your liking. Enjoy this without the raw cacao and make it vanilla. Add nuts or granola with different fruit. Try adding some shredded coconut or superfoods such as maca. Making it with chocolate actually seems like you’re having dessert for breakfast and who wouldn’t like that?
The first three ingredients are your base. From there, it truly is endless so experiment with different flavour combinations as you see fit.
1 cup of oats
1 cup almond milk (coconut milk, rice milk, etc.)
¼ cup filtered water
Toppings & Add-ins:
1 tsp vanilla or ½ vanilla pod
1 tbsp raw cacao
1 tbsp maca
½ -1 tbsp maple syrup (date syrup, honey, coconut sugar)
Nuts & seeds (almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, sunflower, pumpkin, etc.)
Fresh fruit (berries, banana, orange slices)
Simply add the oats and your choice of milk to a bowl, mix together, and leave overnight in the fridge. When ready to eat, remove the bowl from the fridge, mix again, and add your toppings. I love mine with the raw cacao, a little maple syrup, sprinkling of chia seeds, cacao nibs, and frozen raspberries.
P.S. You can make this in a mason jar and take it with you on the go in the morning for your commute or to eat at your desk!
